New mum and chat show host Neha Dhupia, slammed a publication for fat-shaming her in a recent article.
Reported on Deccan Chronicle, the article criticised Dhupia her for her post-pregnancy weight gain, after she and Angad Bedi became parents to a baby girl in November 2018. Dhupia took to Twitter to express her anger, saying she doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. With the caption “Thank you, next!” her post said, “I don’t owe anyone an explanation because fat-shaming like this doesn’t bother me one bit. But I do want to address this as a larger problem because fatshaming needs to stop for EVERYONE and not just celebs. As a new mom, I want to be fit, healthy and energetic for my daughter. So I work out everyday, sometimes twice a day because for me…’Fitness’ is a priority and not ‘fitting into’ society’s standards regarding looks. And I hope in the future people are kinder to each other while making such vapid and vile comments. To quote @Pattonoswalt…Be kind. It’s chaos out there.”
Her post received support from the many in the fraternity, Karan Johar who shared her post in response saying, “Neha! You are an amazing Woman! You walk so many paths with humour…with intelligence and with abandon! It’s never about losing weight it’s always about gaining perspective! And I hope the woman who wrote this has gained some today….”
Sonam Kapoor showed her backing and tweeted, “You are beautiful no matter what any one says.”
Taapsee Pannu reinforced the message, “Whatever shape n size, u make it look super stylish ! @NehaDhupia.” Farhan Akthar followed with, “Low.”
